Day 99. Penguin and Pinecone is one of many stories in the Penguin series, and this one is about a friendship with a lost pinecone. Penguin eventually returns the pinecone to the forest, but the friendship has a lasting effect. This is one of those stories that's a direct analogy for broader ideas ... that everyone has a right environment in which to flourish, that souls very different to one another can still have commonality and friendship, and probably a bunch of other things I haven't considered. It's a sweet story when viewed that way, with simple, appealing illustrations and prose text. I would look for others in the series.
Master A's verdict: Thought the pictures were good enough to eat. Yes, we're still on this.
